Rotura

Publication Date: March 2022

Praise

A moving book where the voice undulates dark and soul-filled along cracked borders, rising boundaries and worn “brown gods” along the routes, grasping at fading shimmers of truth, family, longings and stark existence. Direct and tender, knowing and lilting, shifting and wandering—in all this “rotura” rupture there is warmth, love, suffering and purpose for the long haul ahead. A magnificent, profound and necessary text from the Latinx Renaissance.
Juan Felipe Herrera, Poet Laureate of the United States, Emeritus
